    Room was very clean, tea and coffee facilities, friendly staff, good breakfast, good bus connection

    Internet didn't work on second floor

  • Group of friends

    A room key was provided which also unlocked the main entrance door so we could come and go at our leisure. Breakfast was by fixed menu but it was easy to ask for slight variation, and the food was served quickly.

    My elderley mother travelled with me and I booked the 'comfort' room for her. This proved to be extremely cold and the room heating was from a small radiator that was only on for a few hours in the evening and for a short while from 7am in the morning. This ground floor room cost nearly double the single room rate, The facilities did not meet expectations, so would caution anyone else booking with disabled or elderley facilities in mind.

    Pleasant, comfortable bedroom which was serviced regularly (see below); pleasant, helpful staff and good food.

    The usual custom is to ask for clean towels if they are needed: I didn't need clean towels but was given them - a waste of resources.

    It was quiet and comfortable with a good breakfast and helpful staff.

    It was too far from the city centre and there was no choice in dining venues near by,

    The staff was very very helpful and very good view

  • Family with children

    Breakfast possible only form 8 to 9 (no flexibility at all);Waiting 1h behind a closed door because the owners were not there;Being asked if we had brought his (precious silver) spoon from breakfast room to room; 2 floors stairs steeper than Hillary step!poor old furniture/bed

  • Family with children

    Good position, bus stop at 1 min. From the Guest House. Clean and lovely decorated.

    Still cannot figure out how I ended up paying 200£ more than agreed. No receipt given after paying (apart from the credit card one). By the way, they charge you 5% if you want to pay by credit card.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Friendliness of staff and relaxing atmosphere. Convenient for buses.

    Room and en suite were both adequate but very small. Could have been a bigger choice for breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    No shampoon,shower gel.and hair dryer.
